The seventh grade Mukilteo WESCO AAU Knights are spring league champions. Building on the strength of a 21–4 winter record, the Kamiak feeder team finished spring league undefeated.

Inspired by coaches Craig Tuttle and Ferdinand Santiago, the Knights focus on fundamentals, conditioning and teamwork. They faced each game with the attitude of “play to our standards” and the team war cry of “MTXE,” which means “Mental Toughness, Extra Effort.”
